get ready to work it at TV audition
Are you “fierce?” If so (and if you meet the other qualifications — ferocity alone does not cut it, I guess) “America’s Next Top Model” is looking for you.
The show is holding an open casting call in Austin with the local CW affiliate.
Applicants will be evaluated from 2 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the Driskill Hotel, 604 Brazos St.
One hopeful selected by a panel of judges will move onto the next round in California.
The CW is seeking women ages 18 to 27 of diverse backgrounds, shapes and sizes. One caveat: You’ve got to be at least 5 feet 7 inches tall.
Log on to thecwaustin.com to download an application (you’ll need to have one com- pleted, along with a waiver, when you arrive at the audition) and to review the eligibility requirements.
All contestants must bring legible copies of either:
1. United States passport and driver’s license, or
2. Social Security card and birth certificate.
Contestants also need three photographs of themselves with their first and last name written on the back.
At the casting call, applicants will record a threeminute video of themselves modeling and answering questions about why they want to be America’s Next Top Model.
You’ll want to arrive early: Producers will begin handing out numbers to those waiting in line at 1:45 p.m. on Thursday.
The number of people who want to audition might exceed the allotted time. Once the estimated number of contestants who can be accommodated in five hours has been reached, The CW will not be taking/taping any other applicants.
